Lifeblood: How Successful Business Owners Achieve Wealth
There is excitement in the air. A young couple is in love. The wedding is exquisite. Two large families meet and celebrate. The festivities go on and on. The future holds so much promise--------
Oddly enough, in the midst of all the pleasantries, there is a cloud present. Like oil and water, there are two family members who do not easily mix. They are the new bride and her mother-in-law. Their mutual antagonism is a well known but infrequently spoken about syndrome. Their clash with one another is classic.
Despite their lack of preparation for this, the individuals find themselves in a real inner war with no easy solution in sight. "My Son, What Have You Done?" attempts to analyze the many aspects of this conflict, including history, parents, baggage, expectations, siblings, and other surrounding influences. The style is analytic, objective and logical. The book reads lightly and entertainingly. The factors from the vantage point of both combatants are laid out, allowing the reader to make his or her own evaluation and judgment, and to relate to the situations presented. Surprisingly, "My Son, What Have You Done?" moves from its original neutral position and
leads rather to strong, upbeat, and curative conclusions. Hopefully, its path will be helpful for everyone involved, which is the purpose for which this book was written.
The book includes actual interviews with both mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law, which
run the gamut of feelings, experiences, and hopes.
